Top US government officials are considering requiring everyone who enters the country (US) to be tested for Covid-19 the day before their flight and having all travelers -- including US citizens and permanent residents -- be tested again after returning home, regardless of vaccination status, sources familiar with the discussions have told CNN.

President Biden is planning to announce on Thursday steps his administration will implement to fight COVID-19 in the winter months, including more aggressive travel-related COVID-19 restrictions starting next week.

Biden is expected to announce Thursday that his administration, which has already imposed a ban on international travelers from eight southern African nations, will further tighten testing requirements on all other international travelers entering the country.

The new testing policy, which goes into effect early next week, will require international air travelers to present a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours of their flight, regardless of vaccination status or nationality.

That shortens the time from the current rule, which requires fully vaccinated travelers to present a negative test within three days of their flight. International travelers are already required to be fully vaccinated, but that vaccination policy doesn't apply to American citizens.

A senior administration official told reporters that the new rule would help prevent infected individuals from traveling and that officials believe they will be able to quickly implement the measure.

Stricter testing requirements for travelers coming to the US will take effect Monday

Washington (CNN) - The Biden administration's new, stricter Covid-19 testing requirements for all travelers coming to the United States will take effect on Monday, an administration official told CNN.

The new rules will require each traveler flying into the US from another country to test negative one day before their departure, changing rules that had allowed inbound travelers to test up to three days before entering the country. The new rule from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will take effect at 12:01 a.m. ET on Monday.
